We had just a basic turnout this week for our Friday night Toothbrush 32 group as we had just 8 guys on the signup sheet when it came time to begin racing. Scott usually runs in the A’s but he was needed in the B’s this week considering the turnout. Once the power came on and the guys were off and running, it was Scott who came away with the early lead as he began with 45 laps on green leaving Nathan in 2nd just 5 laps back. Early on in the race Scott did very well and he kept his car on the track for a majority of the race. By the end of the 2nd heat, he was already up to a 10 lap lead. Phil wasn’t having his best night of racing as he was having a hard time keeping his car in the slot, plus his timing seemed to be a little off. Scott would continue building his lead as the race went on and Nathan had 2nd place lock down as he was doing anything in his power to catch Scott. By the time we reached the end of the 8th and final heat, Scott finished with a total of 343 laps and had a fast lap of a 3.835 on green. Nathan actually had the fast lap in the “B” main as he had a 3.726 on green as well. So here’s how the final looked for the “B” main; Scott, Nathan, Phil, and Glenn.
Moving on to the 4 man “A” main where everyone seemed to get off to pretty good starts. Jim began his night on orange and had a solid 48 laps, leaving Tim B and Mel tied for 2nd just 1 lap back at 47 and Steve had 3rd locked down with 46. Mel was flying in the 2nd over on green as he finished with 50 laps which bumped him up into 1st place with a 2 lap lead over Jim. In the following heat, Tim would lose his spot in 3rd as he had a hard time keeping his car in the slot in the straightaway. Meanwhile Steve would have a solid run on green as he had 48 laps moving him up into 3rd place. Mel moved up to a 4 lap lead by the time we reached the halfway point and Jim and Steve were neck and neck going into the 2nd half of the race. They would remain close in the next few heats as Steve was hanging in there trying to make it up into 2nd place. Jim was ahead of Steve by 2 laps going into the 7th but Jim had the hardest lane to contend with; black. He didn’t too badly on black as he had 44 laps but it wouldn’t be enough as Steve was 2 lanes over on yellow and had 47 laps which was enough to move up into 2nd place with just 1 heat to go. The 8th and final heat both Steve and Mel had matching 49’s which gave Steve a 2nd place finish with 372 laps and Mel brought home the win as he finished with 388 laps. So the final for the “A” main this week looked like this; Mel, Steve, Jim, and Tim B. Good night of racing guys and we’ll see you all next week… C/H
We had a total of 10 guys when it came time to begin our first Toothbrush 32 race for the mouth of September. Our 6 man “B” main got going first and in the opening heat we had JR and Mike Hardy finish the first heat tied at 42 laps with the youngster Nathan in 2nd. The 2 would remain tied til the end of the 3rd, that’s when Mike took over the top spot as he went ahead by 2 laps. When we reached the halfway point; Mike and JR were tied again now at 162 laps with Nathan now 4 back. JR would soon prevail as he took the 5th heat with 41 laps on orange giving him now a 4 lap lead. His biggest lead of the night came in the 6th as he finished with a 5 lap lead over Mike. Nathan had 3rd place locked down but really couldn’t afford any big mistakes. His worst heat of the night came in the 7th as he was down on the dreaded black lane, came off one too many times and finished with 33 laps. If you want to win, you have to practice, and purple and black are 2 lanes you really need to spend some extra time on. I’m sure Nathan will come back next week and show those lanes whose boss. Mike ended the night on white and had the most laps with 42, but it wouldn’t be enough in the end as JR came away with the win as he beat Mike by just 1 lap; 326 to 325. So the final for the “B” main this week looked like this; JR, Mike, Nathan, Glenn, Phil, and Javier.
Moving on to the 4 man “A” main where this week it was Steve who came away with the first heat as he began his night with 48 laps on orange giving him a 2 lap lead on Tim B. This is the 2nd week in a row that Steve took the opening heat. During the 2nd, Jim W had the most laps with 46 on green which was enough to jump into 2nd place leaving both the Tim’s tied for 3rd at 87 laps. Steve really had his car dialed in this week and when we reached the end of the 4th, he was up to a 4 lap lead on Jim W. The 5th heat Jim had to deal with the black lane and he finished with 40 laps which allowed for Steve’s lead to double and then some as he jumped up to an 11 lap lead. Jim would go on to get 1 lap back from Steve during the 6th than another in the 7th leaving him within 9 of Steve. The final heat Steve would close the door and seal the deal as he finished with 48 laps on yellow which bumped him back up to an 11 lap lead over Jim; 373 to 362. Here’s how the final looked for the “A” main; Steve, Jim W, Tim W, and Tim B. Congrats to both our winners; Steve Leibrecht, and JR. Good night of racing guys and we’ll see you next week…. (C/H)
The final day of August is here and tonight we got our Toothbrush motor 32 racing on the back track here at Buena Park Raceway. Tonight we had just 7 guys make it out to the raceway and with only 4 “B” racers and just 3 “A” guys, it was decided to hold just 1 race consisting of both A’s and B’s. We got going just at 6:30 and the opening 4 was just 1 “A” racer and 3 “B”s. When the first heat came to an end it was Steve who turned the most laps as he had 47 on white giving him a 2 lap lead on Barry. Tim B began his night in the 2nd and he opened up with 42 laps on red. Barry would take over the lead in the 2nd as he was 16 laps ahead of Kyle who was in 2nd. When it was time for Kyle to sit out he was up to 114 laps and wouldn’t return til the 7th heat. Mel joined the race in the 4th heat and he picked up where he left off last week as he flying, the heat came to an end and he finished with 48 laps on red. Tim B finished the 5th heat with 45 laps on white when it came his time to sit out; he was in first place with 180 laps, which is a pretty good start. Mel had back to back 48’s in his opening 2 heats, but come the 6th heat he landed on orange and really put up a big number as he had 50 laps with a fast lap of 3.515. Mel would run 1 more heat in the 7th then it came his time to sit out, but he was in good shape as he was in 1st place with a 2 lap lead over Steve; 192 to 190. Barry Smith was having a good night as he had a couple 45’s and a 46 in the 7th heat. Mel would return in the 11th heat and continued driving his rocket ship passed everyone else. His lowest number of laps was just 46 which is crazy because most people couldn’t do that on a good day. Leading up to the final heat, Mel had just a 2 lap lead on Steve and Phil P who were tied at 330. So it was going to be an exciting last heat and Mel couldn’t afford any mistakes. Steve had the dreaded black lane to deal with and it didn’t phase him as he finished with 46 laps leaving him with a total of 376 laps. As you can probably guess Mel would come away with the win as he finished with 49 laps on yellow leaving him with a total of 381 laps with a fast lap of a 3.461. Barry Smith would finish 1st for the “B” guys as he had 348 laps which left the final for the “B” group looking like this; Barry S, Phil P, Kyle, and Phil G. Then to the “A” guys, here’s how the final ended for them; Mel, Steve, and Tim. It was a great month of racing and we’ll see you all next month. . . (C/H)
We had a smaller than usual turnout this week for our Friday night Toothbrush 32 racing on the back track as we had just 7 guys make it out. With such a low turnout this week, it was decided to hold just 1 race, consisting of both “A” and “B” racers. So here we go, the race began at exactly 6:45 and it was Mr. Watterson take the opening heat as he began with 47 laps on white leaving Tim B just 2 laps back in 2nd followed by Mike H. Mel Moon began his night in the 2nd heat and he also had 47 laps on red; meanwhile over on green, Tim also had 47 laps leaving him in first place with 92 laps. Tim was really turning some high lap totals and when it came his time to sit out at the end of the 4th he was already up to 188 laps. Mel would also be turning some big numbers in his first 4 heats and when the 5th heat came to an end and it was his time to sit out, he was already up to 190 laps, which was just 2 ahead of Tim B. After a brief hiatus from racing, Adrian would return to us and it was good to have him back, even if its just for the night. He ran 2 heats and decided to call it quits after the 5th heat. He was a little rusty and he felt the car wasn’t performing the way he wanted. Adrian would be out of the race but he soon returned later in the 12th heat. Jim returned and was doing what he usually does and when it came his time to sit out again, he was in 2nd place just 2 laps back of Tim B. Mel Moon would soon rejoin the race he defiantly picked up where he left off; turning 47, 48, 46, and 49 laps leaving his grandtotal at 380 laps. Tim finished his night in the 11th and had a total of 371 laps so 2nd place was up in the air for the time being. With only 2 heats remaining, Jim would need 97 laps to tie Mel for first place. That was quite a big number but I know Jim was up for the challenge. Jim would come close to catching Mel in the end but the lead was too much and Mel came away with the win as he beat Jim by 7 laps; 380 to 373. So the final for this week’s race looked like this; Mel, Jim, Tim, Barry, Mike, Phil, and Adrian.
We had 11 racers here for our Friday night Toothbrush 32 racing on the back track. We had a small turnout of “B” racers with just 4 but we had 7 “A” racers make it out to the raceway. Up first in the “B” main we had the youngster Nathan take the opening heat as he had 42 laps on green. He had a 6 lap lead after the first, he would remain 6 laps ahead of Mike in the 2nd, it wasn’t til the end of the 3rd that Mike was able to get a few back on him. When we reached the halfway point, Nathan had 5 lap lead over Mike and 20 lap lead on his pops. Nathan went on to have a solid run in the 5th as he had 43 laps on yellow moving him up to a 10 lap lead over Mike. The following heat was a difficult one for Mike as he had 34 laps on purple leaving now 18 laps behind Nathan. The lead was now at double digits and Nathan wasn’t about to let up, as you can probably guess the youngster brought home the win as he finished with a total of 329 laps which was 31 laps ahead of Mike H in 2nd place. So the final for the “B” main looked like this; Nathan, Mike, Phil, and Glenn.
Now on to the 7 man “A” main where this week it was an extremely close race thru and thru. Again this week the first heat went to Craig as he started his night off with 48 laps on white which left him 1 lap ahead of Jim. We had a 3-way tie for 3rd at 45 laps between; Steve, Tim B, and Mel Moon. We had a few changes in the following heat as Jim was able to catch Craig in 1st place and they were now tied at 94 laps. Meanwhile we had Mel and Tim B move into a tie for 2nd place at 93 laps and Steve took over 3rd place. These guys weren’t messing around; Craig went on to have 49 laps in the 3rd over on green, meanwhile Tim B had 48 laps on red which moved him up into 2nd place just 2 back of Craig. When we reached the halfway mark; Craig was up to a 2 lap lead over Tim B and a 6 lap lead over Mel Moon. The lead jumped to 3 in the 5th heat then it went to a 4 lap lead over Tim B and Mel who were tied for 2nd at 279. Jim had a good run on red for the 7th heat with 48 laps which moved him up into 2nd place; meanwhile on orange, Tim Neja had 50 laps which brought him slightly closer to the top 3. Tim Neja closed out the night with 49 laps on white which secured a 3rd place finish with 373 laps. Jim also closed out his night with 49 laps which was enough to remain in 2nd place at the end of the race. So our winner for the “A” main who lead the entire race was Craig Correia who finished with a total of 380 laps, but the fastest lap belonged to Tim Neja who had a 3.507 over on orange. Here’s how the final for the “A” main played out; Craig, Jim, Tim N, Mel, Tim B, Steve, and Scott. Congrats to both our winners tonight and we’ll see you all next week.
Friday night and that means it’s time for our Toothbrush 32 racing on the back track. The signup sheet said we had 12 guys here but It looks like Scott took off after corner marshalling for the “B” main. The “B” main got underway and come the end of the opening heat we had a tie for the lead between the youngster Nathan and Mike H who both had 41 laps leaving RJ in 2nd place with 40 laps. Nathan would come out on top at he gained control of 1st moving just 1 lap ahead of Mike. During the 3rd, Rj would move into 2nd place as he was just trailing Nathan by 1 lap. It wasn’t til we reached the end of the 4th that Nathan had a 6 lap lead 163 to RJ with 157. Mike H would move back into 2nd place at the end of the 6th as he moved ahead of RJ by 4 laps but was still trailing Nathan by 7 laps. Nathan made his way to the dreaded black lane in the 7th and finished with just 36 laps; meanwhile over on white, Mike finished with 44 laps which moved him up into 1st with a 1 lap lead. Nathan was unable to catch Mike in the final heat as Mike finished with another 44 laps on red leaving him at 326 laps which was 5 ahead of Nathan. So this week it was Mike Hardy who brought home the win as he was able to beat out the little guy Nathan. Here’s how the final looked for the “B” main; Mike, Nathan, RJ, Glenn, and Phil.
Moving on to the 6 man “A” main where it seemed like everyone got off to awesome starts as the lowest lap total was 46. We had 2 racers finish tied at the top with 48 laps, those 2 were Craig Correia and Mel Moon. Believe it or not, we had a tie for 1st, a tie for 2nd, and a tie for 3rd. when the 2nd heat came to a close, Mel gained control of 1st with Craig moving down to 2nd, and Rick Linn taking 3rd. Mel made it to the halfway point with a 2 lap lead, it wasn’t til the end of the 5th that him and Craig moved back into a tie at 240 laps. They would remain tied in the 6th as they were already at 288 laps. The 7th heat was pretty interesting as; Mel, Craig, and Steve all finished with 47 laps causing Craig and Mel to remain tied for another heat. So it would come down to the final moments of the race to determine who would be our winner. Somehow, Craig and Steve finished the heat with 50 laps; Mel would have 47 in the last heat so our winner this week was Craig Correia who finished with a total of 385 laps, leaving Mel in 2nd just 3 laps back. So the final for the exciting “A” main looked like this; Craig, Mel, Steve, Jim, Rick, and Tim B. We’ll see you all next week.
It's Friday night and we are getting ready for our weekly racing. Where did all these people come from? We have 14 racers 7 in the B's and 7 in the A's. Our B's are up. Glenn, RJ, Mark, Phil, Ryan, Mike and Nathan. The first heat had Nathan and Mike with a lap lead over RJ who had 2 laps on Glenn. Mark, Ryan and Phil fell in a few laps behind. In the second heat Mike began to pull out a lead he would never give up. RJ stayed a lap behind Nathan with Glenn, Mark, Phil and Ryan a few laps back in that order. In heats 3 through 7 the standings remained the same with the gaps increasing. Now it's heat 8 and Mike is on black. Nathan put a real run on the blue lane and got within 5 of Mike. RJ was 13 back of Nathan and 23 ahead of Glenn. Mark, Phil and Ryan filled in the final 3 spots.
Now it's time for the A's. Jim, Craig, Steve, Mel, Tim, Paul and Scott. In the first heat Tim took a 3 lap lead over Craig who had 1 over Jim and 2 over Paul and Mel with Scott and Steve another 2 back. Tim had a tough time on purple, turning only 45 laps and letting Craig catch up. Jim and Mel were 2 back with Paul, Steve and Scott a few more laps behind. Heat 3 had Craig taking a 2 lap lead with Tim dropping back to even with Jim. Mel was 1 lap further back with Paul 6 back of him and Steve and Scott in the last 2 spots. Heat 4 saw Jim drop into 4th with a bad heat on purple. Heat 5 was still close with Craig having 1 lap over Tim 3 over Mel and 4 over Jim. Positions 5,6 and 7 were close with Paul having 2 on Steve who had 2 on Scott after the 6th heat. At the front the 6th heat saw Tim take a 5 lap lead over Craig and Jim with Mel 1 more back. Heat 7 and Tim was back to a 2 lap lead over Craig and Jim with Mel 3 more back. Heat 8 saw Tim lose a little more of his lead but managed to hold on to 1 lap over Jim who finished just ahead of Craig on the same lap. Mel was 5 back with Paul and Steve finishing on the same lap with Paul ahead and then Scott a couple of laps behind them. A close race.
We had 9 guys make it out to BPR Friday night for our weekly Toothbrush motor race. Beginning with the 5 man “B” main, this week it was Mike Hardy who took the opening heat as he began his night on green with 37 laps giving him a 1 lap lead over the youngster Nathan Cherep. Mike went on to follow it up with a solid 42 laps on blue giving him now a 6 lap lead. When the 4th heat came to an end, Mike H was up to a 9 lap lead considering he just finished his worst heat of the night as he had 36 laps on black. Which is understandable considering purple and black are the hardest lanes on the track; but if you put in the extra hours of practice, you’ll slowly start seeing an improvement and soon it’ll be no problem. Mike’s car was really pulling some fast laps but it looks like he came off 1 too many times. Lucky for him he built up a big enough lead to where he could afford to slip up a few times. The Father/Son duo had 2nd and 3rd place locked up for a majority of the race. Phil Glumm would move into a tie for 3rd when the 7th heat came to an end at 218 laps. In the end; the father Glenn, would bring home the 3rd place finish as he beat out Phil by 5 laps. The little man; Nathan Cherep, beat out his pops by a big 42 laps and secured another podium finish with 294 laps. Mike Hardy was the victor as he finished with a 21 lap lead and a grand total of 315 laps. So the final for the “B” main looked like so; Mike H, Nathan, Glenn, Phil, and Mike C.
Moving on to the 4 man “A” main where 3 of the 4 racers started off with 46 laps. Scott W was the one who began with 40 laps while the other 3 were tied for the lead, but it was Tim B who came out on top as he had a super solid 49 laps on white leaving him now 2 laps ahead of Jim. Tim would remain 2 ahead of Jim in the 3rd, it wasn’t til the end of the 4th that Tim got another lap on Jim. Gaining another lap in the 5th, Tim got to his highest lap lead with 4 laps over Jim. Moving on to heat number 6, that’s when Jim was able to finally get a lap back from Tim and was now just 3 back. Tim now had black to deal with in the 7th heat and it was his worst heat of the night. He finished with only 42 laps which really isn’t bad by any means but when you’re in the lead with a couple laps to spare, it’ll really get your boots shaking. Well Jim was only 2 lanes over on yellow and had a solid 49 laps which was enough to take over the lead with only 1 heat to go. The 2 would battle it out for the final heat and they would actually finished tied in the end at 373 laps. They were neck and neck for the entire race and in the end it was Tim B who came away with the win which left the final for the “A” main this week looking like this; Tim B, Jim W, Mel M, and Scott W. It was another fun night of racing and we hope to see you all again next week.
For the 2nd day in a row, we had just 9 guys make it out to the raceway for racing. The 1st heat got underway in the 4 man “B” main and it was Kyle who came away with the early lead beginning with 38 laps. Glenn got off to a bumpy start opening up with 31 laps on red, he soon followed it up with 28 laps on green and now found himself 15 laps back of Kyle. Kyle would continue his steady driving and come the halfway point he had a 19 lap lead. The 5th is when everything changed; Glenn began his climb back up to the top; slowly. Kyle seemed to have a hard time in the 5th and 6th heat; meantime, Glenn was moving closer and closer and come the beginning of the 7th he was within 8 laps. When the 7th heat came to an end, Kyle was down to a 3 lap lead and Glenn was still charging for the top spot. In the end, Kyle would slip up allowing for Glenn to fall into the driver’s seat and bring home his first 1st place finish with 258 laps. So the final for the “B” main played out like this; Glenn, Kyle, Nathan, and Phil.
Now on to the “A” main where we had Mel Moon make his return to the raceway after a 2 week break from the action, we sure missed you around here Mel. We also had Jim sitting the night out as he was having some health issue. Craig also made his return this week to the raceway after a little break. The power came on and the 5 guys were off and running. The first heat we had all 5 of the guys finish with 40 or more laps but ahead of the pack was Tim B who began with 47 laps, leaving Mel and Craig tied for 2nd just 1 lap back. Mel and Craig made a jump up into a tie for first as Tim dropped down to 2nd just 1 lap back of them now. The musical chairs continued in the 3rd as Mel dropped back to a solo 2nd place with Craig and Tim now tied for the lead just 1 lap ahead of Mel. Everyone seemed to continue they’re stellar driving in the 4th, but the heat went to Mel over on yellow who had 48 laps and wouldn’t you know it he was back in the lead just 1 lap ahead of Craig who was in 2nd. Mel would follow it up in the 5th with 49 laps on orange now giving him a 2 lap lead. The 6th heat got underway and Craig came with some fire as he had 50 laps on orange which moved him back into a tie for the lead with Mel at 283 laps. Quickly coming down to the wire, Craig pulled another 50 laps on white which gave him a 1 lap lead on Mel going into the final heat. I don’t know how it was done, but the final heat of the night went to Mel who finished with 48 laps which left him and Craig tied at 380 laps. In the end, Mel would come away with the win as he beat out Craig by just a half lap. It was an exciting night of racing but here’s how the final for the “A” main played out; Mel, Craig, Steve, Tim, and Steve. Congrats to Glenn on his first win in the “B” main and were glad to have all the other guys back, we’ll see you again next week.
